8 slices sourdough or French bread
4 tablespoons butter, softened
1 1/2 cups broccoli flowerettes, finely chopped
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
3 to 4 tablespoons sweet onion, diced
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
pinch of salt and pepper
2 cups (8 ounces) Wisconsin cheddar cheese, shredded
Spread each slice of bread on one side with butter.
In small bowl, mix broccoli, cream cheese, onion, garlic powder, salt and pepper until combined. Place 4 slices bread on clean, flat surface, buttered-side-down. Spread an even layer of broccoli-cream cheese mixture on each slice; top with shredded cheddar. Top with second slice of bread, buttered-side-up. Press sandwich together.
Heat large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Grill sandwiches on both sides until golden brown, about 4 to 6 minutes per side. Remove from heat and let rest about 2 minutes.
Cut in half and serve immediately.
